Jan 28 – Freshman Girls Basketball Dons Close Season with Big Victory

The freshman girls basketball team completed a very successful season with a 35-21 come-from-behind win at Carondelet. The Cougars jumped out to a 10-0 lead before two baskets by Carly Porep cut it to 10-4. The score was 14-12 at the half with Carondelet still ahead. But the arrival of Bella Denny sparked the Dons who went on a 10-0 run and stayed ahead for good. Denny was high scorer for the game. The team went 18-6 on the season and were well-coached by Chad Wellon who stressed the importance of defense all season. The future looks bright for girls basketball at Acalanes.
